of perspective. you've seen speakers calling for 600 billion in healthcare savings over the next ten years. the president said a lower number f. -- lower number. if we take the president's reported to be his most recent number of 400 billion in savings in healthcare over the next ten years. what are we going to be spend on healthcare over the next ten years? over $11 trillion. so at the president's number the spending would represent 3.6% of what we're projected to spend in healthcare over the next decade. we can't save 3.6%? really? you know we're in a situation where 5% of medicare beneficiaries use half of the money. 5% of the beneficiaries use half of the money. certainly we can save 3.6% by doing a better job of coordinating the care of people who are using most of the resources. we've done enough studies i think to conclude we could deliver better healthcare and save money by better coordinating the care of those who are using most of the money. you look at the overall circumstance in this country in terms of what we're spending on healthcare. for 2010, which is the most recent year

,000 and $7,000 at the end of the year after being bailed out buss they have no increase in their healthcare cost coverages and their per hourly rated which is approximately $58 per hour is going to stay in tact. this in my opinion is a big sweetheart deal directed by the united states government. >> so the bonus are not performance based or based on seniority. how are they determining these bonuses. >> these are sign on bonuses. i don't understand the issue of sign-on bonus when you join a company. you join the company and the network away from another company. these are existing workers getting end of year bonuses that are not based on incentives. we just bailed out this company general motors not too long ago. to hand out bonuses it's very peculiar to me. again the government does own 26% of general motors. i think it's a government directed bonus pool that is a lot of pay back for the unions who voted in administration in this office. >> heather: so on wednesday, gm did receive a christmas boost because u.s. treasury it would reduce its stake in gm by selling a chunk of sales back to the

? >> i don't think the romney campaign did a very good job. they ran away from the healthcare thing. by the time he cinched the nomination by march they forgot to pivot they forgot to do it. >> one thing they did a terrible job at they treated the media like a group. they would give briefings as a group. i'm a secretary by training and you can't treat the media as group. you have to get them fighting against themselves. give competition amongst reporters, you leak to one and you give one an interview and you sit down another so they are not all getting the same information and they are not able to gang up on you. >> jon: we talked about the fact there were so many polls taken. there was so much coverage of the campaign and the survey is interesting. pew study found that both campaigns did actually get more negative coverage, but the preponderance was far more the romney campaign. do the numbers surprise you, juan? >> it does surprise you. there is more balance there because i think the american people think the press thinks they were pro obama. >> numbers show they were.

on that story. now national healthcare and lindsay lohan's ann particulars, 2012 was a big year for the courts. in january the supreme court ruled that before the government places a gps tracking device on your vehicle it has to get a search warrant. four months later it said that children conceived through in-vitro are not automatically entitled to benefits after the death of a parents. what the court could look like from here. doug burns a former federal prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. and john manweli, a former criminal defense attorney. waoepl mawaoepl may not influence that the high court cases influence people practicing law day-to-day. doug -rpbgs tel tell me your thoughts on the healthcare. >> a lot of the people ran out of building saying it's been struck down. it was struck down on commerce clause grounds and the necessary and proper clause grounds. jaime: it had to be. >> there it was on page 10 that it was being upheld as a tax which i agree w. the long and short of it was it's the same analysis that we rendered all yearlong. it's 2700 pages long, i'm not sure anybody und
the requirement in the new federal healthcare law that requires some employers to offer insurance coverage for contraception. on wednesday, supreme court justice and sotomayor rejected a request by oklahoma city billionaire david green for an injunction against the role as the challenges it in court. two companies controlled by green say abiding by the contraception requirement would violate their religious beliefs. the mandate takes effect on january 1. los angeles held an annual gun exchange program earlier than planned on wednesday after moving it up in reaction to the newtown massacre. the program is generally held in may, but the l.a. mayor said he decided to hold it in december in part due to lack of federal oversight of weapons nationwide. >> for eight years the senate has stopped the confirmation of the head of the atf, the organization that is duty bound to enforce these laws. the nra said last week that we should have more enforcement of our gun laws, yet they have made every effort to block enforcement, every effort to have these gaping loopholes in the law that make it almost i
still have jobs, now she can afford to get them healthcare. and that's a fox watch across america i'm jamie colby in for shepard smith. one week to go before the country topples over the fiscal cliff. now we are hearing that both president obama and and john boehner are preparing to get back to washington. if they can't work out an agreement and we go over the fiscal cliff it of course will mean smaller paychecks and automatic hefty spending cuts. according to economists possibly another recession. with just days until that deadline, time to cut a deal is rapidly running out. ed henry with the president in honolulu, hawaii. ed, as we get this news. possibly the president leaving his vacation early? >> that's right, jamie. we are now learning from an administration official that it is likely the president will be leaving hawaii tomorrow. probably in the evening to get back to washington early thursday. possibly meet with congressional leaders. start working the phones, trying to move this forward because, frankly, when you talk to administration officials in private, they admit this
of his legacy and in terms of allowing a national health-care plan to be put in place and the congress that had approved this plan but without a single republican vote. you have the court of being determinant. you talked about going for and things like gay marriage and there are immigration issues remaining and affirmative action -- there are key votes coming up in terms of voting rights as well as admission to colleges and universities. i think chief roberts acted in such a way to protect the best interest of the corporate i don't think you'll ever hear that said publicly but i think he felt that if the court had a divided liberal conservative vote against the health care plan that had been initiated by this president and passed by congress with or without the votes, it would have made the court into a more political institution given the background of bush vs. gore in 2000 and the subsequent highly politicized both. i think he was looking out for the best interests of the court and taxation is a legitimate way to do but i was surprised that it came from a chief justice of the united

aspect of healthcare, mental health illness what is wrong with that? >> nothing, that is what the media does. to respond to what jim says. we export jaime, fox' movies all over the world. our culture, video games, movies made in america are seen everywhere else. why only in the united states do do we have this constant drumbeat of store i have rivets i can actions take being place in school. we don't see this happening around the world. to the extent we see it happening, time after time after time, four times since this president has been in office in the united states of america, y. >> there is a fair amount of violence around the world. it comes in all different forms, that's for sure. and look, kelly, you know, look you might need to spend more time watching, say cnn where people like piers morgan and others pound away on the gun issue all the time. you might have seen david gregor on nbc flailing away. it's clear that big chunks of the mainstream media have an agenda against guns. >> do you think the media is more responsible than guns are? do you think they are more responsible tha
